Hi, I was typing up an essay when the monitor screen froze. I turned off the PC and rebooted. At first the PC would appear to be operating but nothing would come up on the screen. I fiddled with the vga adapter that is connected to my graphics card and tried rebooting again. It worked this time but then A Blue Screen of Death appeared before I could reach the desktop. Here is what it says: "A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps: Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters. Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode. Technical Information: STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005,0xB7583E9B,0xB85032F8,0xB8502FF4)" I have a Dell Dimension E521. It is Windows XP I have a feeling it is to do with my graphics card (NVidia GeForce GTX 260) and it's connection, which is a PCI Express 2.0 connection to the motherboard. I'd appreciate it if anyone could at least pinpoint where the problem is and direct me. I think my video card may have packed in, or at least the connection.
